Montessori Meet-Ups 2019

The 2019 Summer Montessori Meet-Ups line up has been set.

Meet-Ups are opportunities for MMS families and friends to connect and have fun over the summer. This is a great way for new families to meet others and for current students to say in touch with their friends in the weeks ahead.

While most events have a contact person listed, no RSVPs are needed unless noted…just show up and hang out with your Montessori friends…wear your “M” shirts and look for others wearing their MMS colors!

Please note that this calendar may be updated with additional activities or changes as events and/or weather dictate. Watch the website, your email, social media and the MMS blog for updates. 

Thank you to Hollie Hubbert for once again heading up our Meet-Ups events. If you have an idea for an additional activity, please contact her 304/389-3031 (cell).
